Child From The Careful Tower

child from the careful tower you'll keep watch
and pray and dream and live your stories through
and they will not come after you

though their horses flash silver, thundering;
how mirage like you will see them pass,
missing the entrance and the winding stair.

and though they search, o everywhere,
thinking, there the treasure is at last,
God Himself

will confound their paths.
